Shock Absorbers

In a bit of a dilemma here guys 'n' gals and need some advice

My rear shocks are on the way out and i don't know whether to replace them with Koni adjustables, or do i fit standard KYB shocks and fit Eibach lowering springs

Anyone on here who has fitted either of the above, or knows somebody who has

Any advice appreciated

Thanks

Thought about Tien. But i don't really want to spend to much to be honest.
The shocks i looked at were around the 1000 mark. A bit over my budget this close to xmas.
